Miss McKown

Hello! I'm Miss McKown, and I absolutely love teaching 2nd grade at Mirage. I graduated from Arizona Christian University and received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in English. I grew up in Phoenix and enjoy hiking, reading, rainy days, traveling, and a good cup of coffee. 

Our school is a No Excuses school. This is a program that instills in students that everyone has the opportunity to further their education after high school. One of the pieces within this program is that each classroom represents a different University. Our classroom currently represents the University of Oklahoma. BOOMER SOONER! I am excited to spend this upcoming year with your kids, encouraging them to grow and learn every day. 

This year, I have a teacher candidate joining us from ASU: Paloma Navarro! She is a fun, kind, and wonderful addition to our 2nd grade team.

As a grade level team, we also use Class Dojo as a fast way to communicate with families.
